A Fistful of (charitable) Dollars…

Time to give yourself a big ol’ slap on the back Nozzers. We are mega chuffed to say that thanks to your support we have raised more for charity in 2016 than ever before!

Those of you who got relaxed and replenished with a massage from Yeleni Healing Centre raised a massive £2564. This money will go towards helping those with cancer and chronic illness.

For all you fine diners at The Chicken Cow Café, your penchant for tasty cuisine has raised £556 for Trees for Cities, our new charity for 2016, who focus on planting trees to create greener cities. Those who got involved with Chicken Shit Bingo also raised £70 for St Michael’s Hospice in memory of our festival friend, Tracey.

Big In The Gambia’s inspiring education talks and funky tunes clearly made an impact on you all as they raised £600, which will help to improve the lives of Gambian mothers and babies.

A big thank you also need to go out to those who got played the Human Fruit Machine, sorted out their thirst with Frank Water or donated camping equipment to People In Motion.

Last but by no means least thank you to Oxfam who come every year and help to look after you lovely lot. Working with Oxfam at Nozstock pays for 91 midwives or 4200 school books.

Your donations have helped to save lives, offer quality care for patients and create a greener environment. Now go feel smug and we will see you all next year for another blinder…

Well Nozstockers, we think it’s time to give yourselves a well deserved pat on the back and bask in your do gooding smugness…

We are very pleased to tell you that thanks to your support our official charities have done better than ever in 2015. The 450 of you who took a break from the festival hive and visited The Yeleni Healing Zone for a massage over the weekend have helped to raise £2165 which will go towards helping those with cancer and chronic illness. Thank you! It’s a massive boost for Yeleni. You can learn more about what they do here.

The foodies amongst you have been at it as well. Those who indulged in a delicious treat from The Chicken Cow Café have helped to raise £622 for Water Aid. That money will be used to help transform lives by improving access to water and sanitation.

We also need to thank all those who got involved with the Human Fruit Machine and supported The Music Pool’s Livewire performance on The Bandstand and the OMG Herefordshire performance on The Garden Stage. Last but not least a big shout out to all of our Oxfam Stewards. Through working at Nozstock Oxfam are able to provide 91 midwives, 52 cows or 4,200 school books. Festival stewarding is fun, but the money raised is serious, and your support saves lives.

Who would have thought festivalling could feel so good? 🙂
